ChocoMuseo, Cusco

4.1
#1 of 43 in Classes in Peru
More than a simple chocolate shop, ChocoMuseo aims to explain the chocolate-making process through exhibits and workshops. Visitors can take a free tour of the exhibits, but the real treat lies in making and tasting your own creations through one of the workshops. Every lesson sends you home with a generous portion of chocolates handmade by you, but if you're pressed for time, you can explore the menu of delicious pre-made treats. To visit ChocoMuseo and get the most from your holiday in Cusco, create itinerary details personal to you using our Cusco day trip tool .

  • If you go here, be sure that you get Manu for a tour guide- he was hilarious. I don’t think that I laughed harder at any time during my week visiting Peru! The chocolate and liquor tasting was fun too...  more »

  • More of a shop with information, but we had iced cocoa tea and a pancake looking over the plaza which was lovely. The staff explained everything we needed to know about the process and were very friendly. They had a workshop of making your own chocolate which looked very cool.
  • Nice as a pastime. More a shop with some information about cacao and chocolate manufacturing than a museum. Staff is nice but almost pushy. Loads of free samples of their products (chocolate bars, chocolate lotion, hot chocolate powder ...). The Cafe there is nice too. We had a chocolate fondue which was very tasty and was served with fresh fruits. Update: We bought some chocolate spreads Unfortunately, all of them tasted rancid even they hadn’t been unexpired (two months to go). Besides that, the jar was not full. Instead, a big air bubble. What cheek!
  • Very knowledgeable staff and amazing taste testing opportunity. Swing by if you have a chance to visit this place and sign up for the class demonstrating how to create chocolate. It is 75 soles per person (~$23) and you are able to create your chocolate from scratch. The only thing better than this would have been actually harvesting cocao beans AT a local area. Regardless, my girlfriend and I had a blast learning about the entire process since we are engineering nerds at heart.
  • Cool store, free tour of the place and lots of free samples. I liked the staff, very friendly and knowledgeable. Im rating it a 4 and not a 5 because the hot chocolate at the cafe was alright, I expected more. Still a must stop in Cusco!
  • I really enjoyed the chocolate making class. Our guide was very knowledgeable and make the class very interactive. They group was large but the there was enough space for us. I think I would be better if other tourists were not able to walk through the class area as it was distracting. Otherwise I highly recommend these classes. Also couldn't help ourselevs to buying some chocolate and spreads.
